Nuclear storage decision stands

A group of West Cumbrian councillors today called for a reversal of the decision not to allow the underground storage of nuclear waste. At a heated meeting this afternoon they claimed there was no coherent reason for the decision.

But their plea was rejected and the decision stands - Cumbria will not bury nuclear waste. This is John Bevir's full report.
